Delta says wants Bombardier jet after Airbus takes stake

Oct 16 (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines Inc said on Monday it looked forward to introducing embattled Bombardier Inc's C-Series jet into its fleet, after rival planemaker Airbus earlier said it would acquire a majority stake in the C-Series program.

Airbus will buy a 50.01 percent interest in C-Series Aircraft Limited Partnership (CSALP), which manufactures and sells the planes. (Reporting by Alana Wise; Writing by Eric Walsh; Editing by Sandra Maler)
